In typical Britney Spears fashion, the same time that she’s supposed to be making headlines about her comeback, spurned by a series of brief shows at House of Blues venues around California, photos of the "Toxic" singer with some important articles of clothing missing are grabbing headlines. But are they really BritBrit? Topless photos that are allegedly of Britney Spears hit the web this week and this is more than just your usual photoshop material, as major sources are claiming that Britney Spears posed for the photos. This is a different kind of comeback for Britney Spears. Well, at least not one that we were expecting this early.Us Weekly claimed that the photos, which show a woman covering her nipples with bright red flowers in a garden and wearing sunglasses and a hat are definitely Britney Spears and that the singer posed for the photos at a friend’s house last month.In other Britney Spears news, her comeback has also been marred by the cops. The tour bus that Britney Spears was using for her mini-tour this week was stopped by police on its way down to the House of Blues on Tuesday. Apparently, around 3pm, police halted the vehicle containing Britney Spears after receiving several 911 calls. If we say Britney Spears, we might call 911 too. The driver alleged that he was trying to evade paparazzi and the police let him off with a warning.Britney Spears continued her mini-tour that started Tuesday night with another show last night at California’s House of Blues in Anaheim. Britney’s not even singing, of course, and opened her show with a lip-synced performance of "…Baby One More Time." She even dragged one ‘lucky’ male fan on stage for a lap dance during a performance of "Breathe On Me." Once again, Britney Spears didn’t actually sing and didn’t do any new material, doing those two songs before "I’m a Slave 4 U" and "Toxic." Fans are actually paying up to $500 for tickets to these four lip-synced songs by Britney Spears, according to showbiz news service Bang!The show at The House of Blues was billed as a show by The M+Ms, a band that doesn’t actually exist, and, after rumors surfaced that it might be Britney Spears, fans popped up tickets for Tuesday night, last night, and tonight in different cities. The M+Ms played Tuesday night in San Diego and it was really Britney Spears and played again at the California House of Blues in Anaheim last night, so it’s safe to say that shows at the Los Angeles House of Blues tonight, and finally the Las Vegas House of Blues in Mandalay Bay on Sunday night are actually Britney Spears shows.The last live performance by Britney Spears happened on her Onyx Hotel Tour in June 2004. After that show she was married to Kevin Federline, gave birth to two kids, entered rehab, shaved her head, and made countless tabloid headlines. Apparently, she also never forgot how to lip-sync.
I wonder how much revenue is generated when you link the terms Britney Spears, topless and shaved all in one short article that manages to link back to your own archive pages 17 times? Actress Archives may be making some cash off their repetitive savvy, but I’m not going to buy anything from them. Just in case you were wondering, I wasn’t out Googling for "Britney Spears topless." For some reason Google News had the "story" as one of their headlines. The whole cult of celebrity thing doesn’t do much for me. I try to ignore people who idolize pop stars as a general rule of thumb.
